The Blackhawks held their 2nd informal practice this week today at Johnny's Ice House West. Mayers, Carcillo, Kruger, Brookbank, Sharp, Bollig, Hossa, Crawford, Shaw, and Bolland were in attendance. Mayers seemed to run the practice that included ex-Hawks & current Oilers winger Ben Eager. Eager is said to still be good friends with some remaining Blackhawks.
Hossa certainly looked healthy and never sat out during the skate. Carcillo had a good practice as well, and made it a point to get plenty of stretching in to help rehabilitate his knee injury that made him miss most of last season.
The big question was where is Nick Leddy? Bollig, Shaw, and Kruger were all in from Rockford... Is this a sign of things to come?
The team may have a few more informal skates left after the owner's meeting on Wednesday. Toews, Kane, and Keith should be back in town soon to catch one before regular team practices at the United Center.
